Mitchell Property Training

Lunch & Learn
PM Workshop – RTA Changes, VCAT – Applications & Notices, Conflict Resolution & Drugs
There are lots of changes in the PM space so this course has been designed to help you understand and prepare for the changes

This PM Workshop has been created to give you a greater understanding of many topics that effect you in your role.

We will cover topics such as:

The upcoming changes to the RTA. The Victorian Parliament has passed the Residential Tenancies Amendment Bill 2018, which includes more than 130 reforms designed to increase protection for renters, whilst ensuring those who provide rental housing can still effectively manage their properties. The problem with the changes is that it is very one-sided in favour of the Tenants, or at least that is what Owners and Agents think!

VCAT – Applications and Notices and how to understand the legislation that governs our roles.

Conflict Resolution and how to deal with difficult situations.

An update on the current situation with Drugs in Rental Properties and what we can do to stay safe.
